Default Survival kit

I found this on an Austrailian woodworkers site and changed a few words so it would fit woodcarvers.

The Woodworkers Outback Survival Kit.

Contents
One plate of glass, 10MM thick and about 305MM square
Various and sundry sheets of sandpaper up to 6000 grit
3M #77 spray glue
Various water stones up to 8000 grit
Slow speed water cooled grinding wheel with accessories
Protractor
8X Lupe
Instruction manual, "Achieving a Perfectly Sharp Gouge"
Small folding table
One dull gouge

Instructions for use
Should you ever become lost or disoriented in the Outback, set up the table, refer to the instruction manual and begin to sharpen the gouge.

Within minutes, 87 well meaning souls will materialize out of thin air and explain the correct method for sharpening a gouge.

Any of these 87 people can then lead you out of the Outback. [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/dka/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtml1/01/clip_image001.gif[/IMG]
